Saudi Arabia bans men from marrying women from four countries

Saudi Arabia has prohibited its men from marrying women from Pakistan, Bangladesh, Chad, and Myanmar, according to Saudi media. The move is aimed at discouraging Saudi men from marrying foreigners.

Those wanting to marry foreign women should first obtain consent from the government and submit marriage applications through official channels, Makkah Police Director, Maj. Gen. Assaf Al-Qurashi said.

Qurashi said divorced men would not be allowed to apply within six months of their divorce.

Applicants should be over 25 and attach all identification documents signed by the local district mayor, including a copy of his family card.

“If the applicant is already married, he should attach a report from a hospital proving that his wife is either disabled, suffering from a chronic disease or is sterile,” he said.
